London Underground workers are to begin three days of strike action in the long-running row over ticket office closures.

Members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport (RMT) union will walk out from 9pm.

The union claimed that long-running talks hosted by the conciliation service Acas, aimed at settling the dispute were "wrecked by a combination of management intransigence and the introduction of additional measures" the union said worsened the original plans.
